Anyone had a multi-colour Triathlon 260 and/or black Vector 2 with blue pinstripes stolen?  They are on Ebay UK, with descriptions that clearly show the seller knows nothing about the kit or parachuting. Seller located near Headcorn.

Good spot. They clearly don't know what they're talking about.

Seller has decent feedback so makes it feel like believe they own the kit. Wonder if it could have been a house clearance etc. I'm trying to believe the best in people.

 

They're based in Ashford, Kent so I've put some feelers out to some skydivers at Headcorn.

Response from a rigger at Headcorn:

 

Nah he's legit. I can't remember where he said they came from. Some sort of clearance, I think.
He brought them by the DZ to find out about them and to see if we wanted them.
We told him and sent him on his merry way. He had a couple of helmets too if I remember correctly a protec and an original freezr.

Also until then I had no idea you could get a triathlon that big.

 

 

Get yourself a bargain if you want a Triathlon 260. :-)
